Fire zones meet at the junction

March 2006
Fire Safety Engineering;Mar2006, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p44
The article reports that The Junxion, a residential in the heart of Lincoln in England has been installed fire detection system with about 2,000 Apollo devices. An intelligent fire detection system, which was based around a ten-loop Multi Alarm IFAX control panel, was issued by the Leader Systems to meet the needed capacity for each fire zone. It contains 950 Apollo Discovery smoke and temperature detectors. The fire detection system is planned to offer phased evacuation in the event of an alarm.
